Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars.

I know, right?

Truly delicious and simple too. Oh gah another new member of the Ultimate Evil Club, tell your thighs I’m sorry.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars
1 cup cold butter
2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon salt
whirl these in a food processor
they will clump up a bit but won’t make a “real” dough, that’s OK
simply press 2/3 of the the crumbles into a 9×13 pan
bake for 10-12 minutes
to the remaining dough add:
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
pulse to combine
when the cookie base is done remove from the oven and dot with:
1/2 cup jelly or jam of your choice
1/4 cup of peanut butter
sprinkle the remaining crumbles on top pressing down to settle them in
bake again for 20-25 minutes, check at 20 to see how the base is looking, you don’t want it too brown
remove from the oven, cool and cut in to squares

A few thing to make and do this week, besides Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars, that is.

I know how I am going to use up some of the 5 pound bag of garbanzo beans I got today. Check out this delicious Chick Pea Stew from Simply Life.

Christina over at Dinner at Christina’s can show you how to butterfly a chicken, check it out:

Nicole took an opportunistic sunny day to create a beautiful play space outside for her daughters using a silk tent like this one:

And I have to say I want one of these canopies for myself now.

Ally from Sweet and Savory made this beautiful White Lasagna, I think I’ll be making this too. Except maybe a vegetarian version?

And let’s top all this fun off with a Drinking Game for Parents from Swistle. For parents ONLY now, no one else will appreciate it. Ah yes I love Swistle and her drinking game sounds fantastic, at least while remain upright.

So another week of make and do. Do you want to share something you make, or do?  Well just send me an email and we’ll figure it out.

Peace and Love,
